“Awesome and Unique Experience”
Review of Sikia Jhora

Sikia Jhora
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

Heard a lot about the jeep safari or elephant ride .. but this is very unique and adventurous. This is a narrow stream with deep forest both side .. and we were in a boat .. good we did not see any wild animals there and we did not want to see anything in the middle of water..

But elephants were very close beyond our sight though ... left lot of traces all around. The ride hardly costs rs 100 per person including the parking and park entry fees.

The boatman would ask for some tips to get you deeper in side the jungle ... it was a memorable enjoyable and worthy journey.

Sikia Jhora is a tiny river in the Buxa Tiger Reserve.A dam has been constructed by the government recently and that has attracted tourists from far and wide especially for boating and bird watching!!

Visited on 23/12/17
Time - 4.00pm

The boat-ride costing only INR 50/- per person and parking is INR 30/- per car.

the boat ride is exciting and best enjoyed if everyone is quite and just enjoys the sound of the nature.

Its a local treasure and must - visit once you are in Alipurduar.

Sikiajhora is about 1-1.5 hr drive from Jaldapara Tourist Lodge. We went there on May, 2017 year while returning from Buxa - Jayanti trip. We reached the spot by 2 p.m. We had heard about the breathtaking boat ride but when we enjoyed it ourselves the word 'Breathtaking' appeared to be underestimate. You can mix Thrilling, Adventurous, unbelievable. The boat ride is run by a society, members are very co operative, charge very cheap for boat ride... only 50 rupees per head. Don't miss to visit Sikia Jhora once you are off to Dooas and Planning Buxa.

We visited this place last month during our Buxa Tiger Reserve tour. The place I think at a distance of 30-40 minutes drive from Alipurduar City(District town of Alipurduar district, West Bengal). So calm. green a place you should not miss if you are travelling this part of the world. Local underprivileged women maintain this place and they also arrange the main attraction of this place , i.e., boat riding. They take 35 people in each trip by fiber boat. Its a 30 minute boat ride through the dense wood. If you are lucky enough could have a glimpse of passing elephant hard or Bison drinking water from the river bank you are cruising through. At the backdrop your vision will be intercepted by green carpet clad hill jayanti. Don't miss this experience.
